Why using a website builders is a bad idea?

Website builders are used extensively by some amateur developers who might have yet to develop their capabilities in website development. The builders are abundantly available in the market, some even for free or on the free + Premium model. Amateurs feel super confident in using them and happy as they see their work getting developed. However, they create many challenges in the long run, and You must rebuild almost all such websites again, as they do not give any results in digital marketing. Website development coding can be tricky if you are not comfortable with it or have some experience.

Using even the best website builders is analogous to shooting you in the foot before the race begins.

What is "WYSIWYG"

It is an acronym for what you see is what you get.

It is a software application for designing and developing your website. You select, drag, and drop elements to the desired part of the website to build on it. It looks easy as you do not have to remember coding and apply them. It is ideal for people without any coding background.

The website builder creates its HTML, CSS, and Javascript as you use these elements. You do not have to code any part of the website using these applications.

Disadvantages of using Web development tools

Let's look at a few points that make using even the best website builders a nightmare for all purposes. Instead, you should hire a website development agency in Delhi like AmitKK to get your website built beautifully.

Unnecessary bloated HTML codes

Web development tools create huge layers of coding which are not at all required. This bloated HTML code impacts the website adversely as the time to evaluate and parse them increases with each layer. The codes on inspection look very confusing, and most layers need to be more varied.

It happens as the website-building software is designed to take all the anomalies into account. But you might only need some of these layers and still have to use them.

You have no access to these codes.

If you think of editing the codes in the final rendered output, you won't be able to do so. You only have the frontend WYSIWYG frontend editor and cannot do anything beyond that.

It puts a serious handicap on technical SEO as you need to edit the codes to do technical SEO.

Imagine using a website builder for online stores where you cannot edit the codes and are stuck with them. Scalability goes for tossing through the window, and you must build the whole website again.

Very low Page speed

Page speed is the most seriously impacted part of using website builders, and everything in it contributes to it. Bloated HTML codes, unnecessary CSS, and Javascript codes add to this.

The page speed of these websites does not cross 20 on testing on the Google page speed test, whereas 80+ is required for a good user experience.

Poor Scalability

If you think of scaling up the website in the future, you face great challenges. More often than not, you have to give upscaling up or get the website redeveloped.

It is due to the limitations of these WYSIWYG software applications.

If you are looking to include some customized features like showing different blogs as per the page the user is on, forget it. Hire any of the best website developers in Delhi to build a scalable website.

Poor Mobile Responsiveness

Most of the websites are designed for desktop screens only. Making them mobile responsive requires monitoring the impact of screen changes on various elements and making changes accordingly. It is not possible in web development tools, which cannot make your website good for mobile.

Considering the amount of traffic that is generated through mobiles, it becomes imperative for your website to be mobile-responsive.

Advantages of Using Custom Website Themes

On the other hand, let's look at the advantages of building custom themes.

Full control of Codes

Since you have developed the website from scratch, it leads to bare minimum coding in all files; hence, their evaluation and parsing time reduces drastically.

High Scalability

Do you find something interesting on the internet and want to integrate it into your website? You can do it very easily, as the codes are completely scalable. You can even change the website's aesthetics easily with a little effort.

High Mobile Responsiveness

The website is 100% mobile responsive, as you can control what goes where. You can easily make the website responsive to all screens possible.

High Page Speed

The websites I develop touch the speed of 80 + without having to make any effort on them. With some minimal effort, I have even touched the sweet score of 100 out of 100.

SEO Results

The SEO results of websites built from scratch also appear good. It is because of good reception by Google crawlers, who have to read and analyze less data. On the other hand, websites built using builders have poor SEO for the same reasons.

So why do people use them?

Despite the disadvantages, these builders are still used a lot, and some of the reasons are:

Easy to use

People look for easy solutions without considering the long-term impacts of these solutions. You might get a decent-looking website on the desktop screen, but the truth is it is nothing but trash. The only reason you feel proud of it is that you designed it.

The difficult learning curve of website development

The learning curve in website development can be difficult for many to negotiate. But once negotiated, you reap benefits, and the advantages are multifold.

Little understanding of technical SEO

People understand SEO and its technical part. Because of this, they need help to connect it with the website coding and its importance.

Website Development Cost

Still, people see website development as unnecessary and look for ways to reduce it. Web development tools come in very handy as people can develop themselves. However, You should consider the long-term cost and its disadvantages.
